Tell it to SunStar: No firing of guns

I THINK that the biggest problem during the New Year’s eve merrymaking, aside from the explosion of big frecrackers, is the firing of guns. Mao gyud nay akong kuyawan. Didn’t we already hear stories of people, even children hit by stray bullets during New Year’s eve merrymaking? It’s not only the policemen who may fire their guns but also private gun owners or those who have paltik guns.

I heard somebody say that the velocity of the bullet going down is also the same as the time that it is going down. So it’s very dangerous. More so if those who fire the gun fires it horizontally. Samot gyud nga kuyaw. Daghan ra bang buang karon. That is why policemen should be on patrol so gun owners will not think that they can get away with firing their guns.

Kita sad magbantay. We can look out for any gun owners among our neighbors and monitor what he is doing. Report to the police if he tries to fire his gun. Better still, let us not go out of our houses when the clock strikes 12 midnight. Lahi na gyud nang mag-amping.--Cres Delatar of Cebu City

Officials’ silence

Minglanilla officials have not been talking about the traffic problem in their town but somebody who claims to be the press information officer of the municipal government is, at least on Facebook. I read his debate with critics.

But I think he is not fit to be a PIO. He does not know how to give substantial answers. Instead he attacks personally the critics. Instead of making the Minglanilla officials look good, he is making them look bad. I think it is wrong.

Why won’t the Minglanilla officials just talk directly to the people? The commuters also want to see the face of these officials and how they speak. Because they hide from the public we already think they are not good officials.--Tessie Yu Sy
